Police Launch Investigation Into Ashley Cole/Rio Ferdinand ‘Choc Ice’ Tweet

Alas, ’twas a simpler time

Here we go again. Derbyshire Police have confirmed that they will be launching an investigation into the Tweet sent to Rio Ferdinand in which Ashley Cole was referred to as a ‘choc ice’ , i.e, black on the outside, white in the middle – a Tweet which Ferdinand referred to as ‘classic’ at the time.

It was, of course, a reference to the recent John Terry/Anton Ferdinand race trial, in which Ashley Cole testified on Terry’s behalf, telling the court that he’d never heard his teammate do nuthin’ racist or nuthin’ – the inferred wotsit being that Cole was therefore a black man in cahoots with the ‘white establishment’ or some such crap.

Cole stated that he was aware of the Tweet at the time and that he had no intention of complaining about it, but it seems that didn’t stop the public sticking their oar in on his behalf.

A spokeswomen for the Derbyshire Constabulary said:

“We have received complaints from members of the public regarding alleged racist comments made on a social networking site.

“These concerns will be fully investigated to establish whether any criminal offences have been committed.”

Just when you thought it’d all gone away, back it comes, belching up the gullet like the odious miasma of last night’s Rogan Josh. It’s all just so tetchy, puerile and childish at the moment. When Ashley Cole is setting the example, you know something’s gone horribly awry somewhere along the line.


Seems like we could save ourselves a lot of bother by just striking Twitter from the internet altogether.

Anyway, all this talk of choc ices has made Pies a little peckish. Might have a nibble on a ‘Negrito’ to take the edge off…

    “the odious miasma of last night’s Rogan Josh.”

    You could have said ‘last night’s KFC bargain bucket with extra fries and 2 lites of Pepsi’ but no! You had to bring foreign food into it further ratcheting up the racial tension ;-)

    @ Yampster – you could argue that had Chris used KFC ie; fried chicken then that could also have been deemed racist, its a culinary nightmare

  3. Yampster says:

    The answer could have been to use ‘Macdonalds Big Mac with extra fries’ which would have been racist towards the Scots but they are not reading anything about football at the momemnt so he may have got away with it

    No Ferdinand, Ashley isn’t an uncle tom, he’s just a twat.

  5. Bill says:

    He’s more of a Solero anyway.

    and it’s by ‘bimbo’! nice touch of misogyny to add to the mix. not that misogyny ever warrants a police investigation. lol. what a ridiculously hypocritical headache and it just goes on and on

  7. Joe says:

    @lisa: bimbo means ‘child’ in Italian, where I presume this is from. For the rest, doesn’t our police force have better things to do? I hear there’s this thing in Stratford where they’re lacking a bit of security personel…

    honestly, this shit really does make me weep for humanity.

  9. plops says:

    Christ, am I sick of these cunts.

  10. KKK says:

    @plops- Which cunts? The white ones, or the black ones?

  11. LFC247 says:

    Bimbo is a Mexican brand of bakeries. Negrito’s had to be renamed “Bimbolete” to be sold in the US. Not as good of a name

  12. p says:

    the Uk is a joke

  13. Nil says:

    Lol @ KKK. Why don’t we all accept that we’re all a bit racist and that makes us ALL cunts and then we can all get on with our lives. And why don’t we all accept that Rio is a proper cock as well?

  14. queen says:

    @Joe: it’s a Mexican candy.

  15. Toz says:

    The company Bimbo is Mexican, not Italian. They make baked goods and are in fact the biggest baking company in the world.

    Bambino is child in Italian, Bimbo has no meaning in Spanish. In fact the name bimbo was a mix between bingo and bambi.

    Oh dear, more of “da beez racis’ n’ sheiiiiiit” crap
